The 2014 NFL Draft has come and gone for the Philadelphia Eagles. The team made some expected moves, adding depth and class to the wide receiver group, as well as some unexpected moves. Adding defensive end Marcus Smith with the 26th pick was seen as a surprise, with many expecting the player to fall in to the second round.

However, as the dust settles on a hectic few days, it’s time to start looking ahead to the 2014 season. With that in mind, here are five predictions for the next season. Feel free to recall this post in December and laugh…

Many Philadelphia Eagles fans are excited by the signing of an undrafted free agent kicker Carey Spear from Vanderbilt. Spear, or Murderleg as he’s nicknamed, will add much needed competition to the kicking position for training camp. However, there is a reason that the Eagles actually drafted Henery a couple of seasons ago: He is a good kicker. In the face of competition from Spear, I believe Henery will return to the kind of form showed in his promising rookie year. Alex Henery will grow under the pressure from another kicker and become one of the league’s top performers, earning a Pro Bowl in the process.
